Software Engineering Lead




Albus Health is a medical technology startup that develops intelligent remote monitoring systems for in-home patients taking part in clinical trials, with further applications in healthcare. At the core of our product lies a contactless smart device that automatically collects symptom information without anyone having to do or wear anything. We are looking for an embedded software engineer for systems running Linux operating system as we advance our product and develop the next version. We would like you to join us in our mission to improve lives of a billion people worldwide struggling with chronic conditions such as asthma and COPD.

Albus spun out from the Department of Engineering and Respiratory Medicine at Oxford University back in 2017 and have since then won multiple wards (including AI in Health and Care Award by UK’s Health Secretary and UK Research and Innovation). Albus is firmly backed with multi million pounds investment and we are now looking to expand our technical team in Oxford to develop new products and solutions that can operate at a global scale.

Our potent combination of technical, clinical and commercial experts has allowed us to gain significant commercial traction in a relatively short duration. Our solution is now in use by some of the world’s largest pharma companies and we are preparing to scale up our operations domestically and overseas.

Albus has partnerships with top hospitals in the UK and some of Europe’s best clinicians. We have been running multiple carefully selected clinical studies and trials for several years, and as a result, acquired a wealth of data. This data will be instrumental to further advance our technology and to continue extracting valuable insights that would prevent emergencies and deaths for people struggling with chronic conditions.
